Students from Alert Bay Elementary School (Kindergarten to grade 7)
Alert Bay celebrated the 46th Earth Day with the first annual Fruit Tree Planting. Each year a fruit tree will be planted in a public space so that in the decades to come the Village will have a small orchard for residents and visitors to enjoy. A delegation from the Village and Alert Bay Elementary came out at noon to participate in the planting of a plum tree. Shown above are students from Alert Bay Elementary. This event was organized by David Faren, the North Island Engagement Director for the North Island Powell River Greens.
What fun planting a useful tree…those kids will remember this for the rest of their lives…the planet lives!
